When that happens, will definitely let you know.

Thanks Keith. This one post has made me feel a lot better. It means a lot to me.

Maybe this could even allow you to re-implement Lightsaber stances the way the original devs envisioned them (since there are no stances anymore, you could re-implement them as cosmetic stances) where the animations would change depending on the stance used.
Interesting...let me ask.

Thought of this myself for some time...
It's like having my dark sided Jedi Guardian assume the stance of a Sith Warrior when he has his saber drawn.
And, just like a Juggernaut could perhaps even be performing the combat animations.

I think it could be possible, and would be a nice way to enable some sort of 'class change' for a character. Not by actually enabling a player to switch between base classes, let alone advanced classes, which I still think should be made possible. But it would at least be another QoL aspect for many of us?

Lololol and funny how a very minor animation not impacting gameplay gets a possible fix but game crashing, video not working, and outfit preview bug from 2014, etc impacting a majority of players (and resubbing) is not tripping any bw comments or concerns....... for a priority to at least promise a fix.

Anyone know where the "BIG (bug fix) LIST" is?

The existence of a bug does not guarantee a patch is possible.

lol again, lets get a Known Bug list out there like we had a few builds back. A list of issues not related to the pc but the game code being researched and put on a list for a bug fix mitigation (even if eventually).

This brief known bug list is not cumulative and you have to search all over. Many bugs not listed like SH Bleeding, no outfit designer bug etc etc

http://answers.ea.com/t5/STAR-WARS-T...86775#U4886775


If we had an all inclusive known bug list then we can see the 100 or so bugs, then we might be able to collectively help BW prioritize what are unsubbing level bugs vs cosmetic or trivial. We collectively don't want the trivial easy bug fix persuit to make BW think they are on top of the important bugs and then they staff down to that. They can say oh we fixed 1 bug this week and did 1 player requests to EA but in fact 100 plus old bugs are still out there. There are numerous and long time bugs getting zero attention, not even accepting it's a bug. So many of us are reinstalling drivers, checking ini files and searching forums because it impacts game play and crashes or prevents missions or group missions-- we are not getting the value out of the subscription.

if you are referring to the Microsoft Windows 10 crashes, that was fixed by Microsoft and if you update to the latest windows patch (KB4025342-OS Build 15063.483), that should resolve the issues. With respect to Preview bugs, we know and have made a variety of changes to it, but it still needs a lot of work, and like the animation request, it's also not game breaking, so it hasn't made it to a priority list either.

On the animation question, he had asked if we would investigate it and I said we would, so I thought it was reasonable to respond to his inquiry.
